David West Dominates in Return to New Orleans

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

David West played the first eight years of his ten-year pro basketball career with the New Orleans Hornets. West, a first-round draft pick in 2003, was also named to the Western Conference All-Star team twice during his time in the Big Easy. On Saturday night, West returned to New Orleans with his new team, and put on a basketball clinic in front of his old fans.

West is now playing in his second season as the starting power forward of the Indiana Pacers. On Saturday night, he helped his current team bounce back from a dismal first half performance in Charlotte, resulting in Indiana’s biggest comeback victory this season. The Pacers had their lowest-scoring first half of the year, putting up only 29 points on the board in the games first two quarters. Indiana came out swinging after halftime, going on a 22-2 run to start the third quarter, after tailing by as many as 22 points in the second quarter. The two teams battled back-and-forth, but Indiana eventually rode a 28-point swing towards an amazing turnaround victory.

West led all scorers with 25 points. He only shot 2-9 in the first half, but finished the game by hitting nine of his last eleven attempts. West impressed his new team by helping them hand his old team their eleventh-straight loss. The game in New Orleans marked the nineteenth-straight time that West has scored in double-digits. His veteran leadership, poise, and presence helped to propel the Pacers, and totally deflated the Hornets.

The Mamba is in a retirement year, man, let him go out with his dignity still in tact.
